Hey, baby…you’re the Bomb for sure.
Daddy’s nuts soaked it up, transmitting the glowing juice to the next generation. Mutants are here, hear? Hot core fixes the future like a photo. Burning, shining, nausea and finally freaky tadpoles. Hop on Pop, fly-boy! Twitching and different and Noh going back now. Happy Hiroshima Day very much! And Happy Andy Birthday too. Thank you. Thank you. (GH)
They’re starving in Africa. They’re rioting in Spain. There’s hurricanes in Florida, and Texas needs rain.
The whole world is festering with unhappy souls. The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch. And I don’t like anybody very much!
But we can be tranquil and thankful and proud, for man’s been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud.
And we know for certain that some lovely day, someone will set the spark off… and we will all be blown away.
They’re rioting in Africa. There’s strife in Iran. What nature doesn’t do to us… will be done by our fellow man.

From a Japanese TV game show: competitive acrobatic testicle-whacking for fun and profit. Not actually gay in its cultural context, certainly it is homoerotic to our quirky eyes. Via 15 Association Fraternal JB. Thanks! Dedicated to Big Gay Al, who digs this kind of thing. Don’tcha, Al? Thwack! For the video clip of these guys in action, click here. Translation of text in upper left? More context? It would be much appreciated!

This trick requires both size and flexibility. Not all that rare, but not all that enjoyable, either. Most guys who can do this do it more as a parlor trick than a standard mode of masturbation. Small Japanese ivory sculpture in netsuke style.

Good Morning from David and Louis from London. These two know how to start the day. Most important meal and all that. They also know how to wear the fundoshi, the traditional, very sexy Japanese loincloth-style underwear. For their video lesson on how to tie one on, click here. Photo by Denis Bahus, via Bearotic.

When an androgynous male model named Jo Calderone appeared in Vogue Homme Japan last year, celeb watchers noted that he looked a lot like Lady Gaga might in male drag. Turns out, that is exactly who “he” was. The young diva, who dodges regular rumors that she is intersex, shows off Jo on the cover art of her next single, “You and I.” You Go, Guy Gaga!

Fukya! JoJo Mendoco c2011
“Let’s enjoy G-Men’s way.” New from JoJo Mendoco. This one is directly inspired by the Japanese G-Men series. Mainly manga for gay men, G-Men focuses on Bara (Bears), Gaten-Kai (Blue-Collar Men) and other masculine types. G-Men features photographic material as well as cartoons and personal ads. Mangaka (manga artist) Gengorah Tagame is a driving force behind this hot series. More on him soon. Very visual in its impact, no reading knowledge of Japanese is needed to enjoy G-Men’s way!

Last year, Chile. Last month, New Zealand. Last week, Japan and now its aftermath, ongoing. What next? Who knows. What now? Do what we each can. In that spirit, a loose group of kinky artists in San Francisco are presenting Shibari Relief: “We know what it’s like to live on a fault line.”
From their website: “Mark I Chester and Patti Beadles are organizing Shibari Relief. There will be a silent auction/sale and raffle of BDSM art, sexual art and other related items. There is no door fee, but a suggested $20+ donation can be given at the door. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. 100% of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross earmarked for disaster relief in Japan.
As a special added bonus, anyone making a donation at the door will get a ticket to get two free digital pix taken by San Francisco gay radical sex photographer, Mark I Chester at his studio at 1229 Folsom St., just 1/2 block from Wicked Grounds, from 3-5pm during the fundraiser.”
Shibari Relief takes place in San Francisco at the kink-oriented Wicked Grounds Cafe at 289 8th St. on Sunday, March 27, 2011 from 2 – 5 pm.This is an all orientations and genders event. Artists who may be of particular interest to readers of this site include Mark I. Chester, Charles Gatewood and Michael Rosen.
Artists interested in contributing to the relief effort can contact Mark I. Chester through his website.

Via a Toronto-based friend of this site who found it at the Batman-themed blog Batmania. This strange toy is circa 1966 and of Japanese manufacture. This husky bear of a Bat is a squirt-gun. The reservoir is accessed through a plug in his butt. To fire, pull the trigger between his legs and water will squirt out of his mouth. Seriously. More to come with a Batman themed slide show guest-curated by Kaspar.
